RackLift™ RL3000 | 3000LB Manual Server Rack Lifter

The RL3000 is a manual lift designed to lift and move an entire, fully loaded cabinet.

With this server rack mover one technician can lift and move a fully loaded server cabinet from one location to another.

By moving an entire loaded cabinet, your data center will save time that is normally wasted disassembling and reassembling cabinets for relocation.

A variety of different racks, empty or fully populated, can be lifted and moved using the RL3000.  The RL3000 can also be used to raise cabinets temporarily to access the floor below and to lift cabinets from a pallet.

This is the ideal rack mount lift tool for your data center because now a single operator can relocate data center cabinets easily and safely.

How The RL3000 Rack Lifter Works

The RL3000 consists of two units working in tandem – one on each end of the server cabinet. Both units are placed in position and secured to the rack housing. The operator turns the handle on one of the lifts to raise the cabinet slightly off the floor.  The process is repeated on the other lift until the load clears the floor.  The high-ratio gearing enables anyone to effortlessly lift up to 3,000 pounds/ 1361 kg.  A brake automatically engages when the user releases the handle.

During transport the weight is spread across eight dual castor wheels to distribute the load on raised floors.   Once the desired position is achieved the load is lowered to the floor and the units removed.
